Trove: a collection of delightful and magical objects

The Troves that I construct are small stages where fragments of drama are crystallized into fine-tuned emotional optic sentences. I enjoy suggesting a dynamic tête-à-tête between symbols inside the Troves or give a visual voice to a lyrical phrase. I have been compelled to the assemblage of substances — found objects and semi-objects, pigments, surfaces and paints — for as long as I can remember. As a child, I began to fashion these small, contained universes with three-dimensional symbols because I did not think I was able to draw. Rather than a formal education in the Arts, I owe my artistic awakening to the small and dusty stuffed-wildlife displays under glass that I saw in my childhood visits to the Museum of Natural History of Madrid.
